Lord's, London , Jun 02, 2021
275&170/3 (70.0)
378&169/6d
England drew with New Zealand
Right then! That is all we have for you from this Test, I hope you enjoyed our coverage. The Test didn't end with a result but it was a great game of cricket. If it hadn't rained on Day 3, then we could have probably witnessed a result, but such is life. The game might be over but the series isn't. The second Test between England and New Zealand will be played on 10th June 2021 at Birmingham. The match will start at 1100 local (1000 GMT), but like always, our build-up starts before that. Do join us then! Till then, stay safe and goodbye!
Devon Conway is the MAN OF THE MATCH, says that it is a special feeling to get a double ton on debut. Adds that the wicket was a bit two-paced but it was a good Test match wicket. Says that he is grateful for getting the opportunity to play for New Zealand at the later part of his career. Adds that it was about expecting that the English bowlers weren't gonna leak a lot of runs and working through that.
Joe Root is up for a chat, he says that they looked to build a foundation at the start of the innings. He adds that it could have been easy for New Zealand to open the door but the batters did well to show character. He mentions that in the first innings they could have been more disciplined. As batters and individuals, they needed to show more discipline. He praises Burns and says that he was fantastic throughout and played phenomenal first innings coming back to the side and showed great resilience and character.
Kane Williamson is down for a chat, he says that they had a bit of work to do in the morning before they could declare. Says the if there wasn't a washout on Day 3, there could have been a result. Adds that Conway's performance was incredibly special and that he played within himself and that it is an incredible feat to get a double ton on debut. About their bowling, says that Tim Southee led the attack beautifully for them. Adds that both the teams could have pushed for a result if a day wasn't lost due to rain.
Earlier in the Test, a sublime double ton by Conway on debut put New Zealand at the top as they got to 378 in the first innings. For England, it was their debutant, Ollie Robinson who impressed and picked up 4 wickets. In reply to New Zealand's 378, England could only manage to 275. Their batting revolved around Rory Burns as he batted till the very end. He found good support from Joe Root and Ollie Robinson. For New Zealand, it was Tim Southee who shone by taking 6 wickets.
Earlier in the day, New Zealand set a target of 273 for England after declaring their innings at 169. They scored brisk runs in the morning. For England, it was their debutant, Ollie Robinson who once again did well with the ball and picked up 3 wickets in the second innings of New Zealand.
If New Zealand had to win this game, they needed to pick 10 wickets in two sessions. Which meant they needed early wickets but that wasn't to be. They bowled in the right channels but failed to get either of the English openers out early. Finally, it was Neil Wagner who broke through with the wicket of Rory Burns and then Tim Southee picked Zak Crawley soon after. They bowled fairly well but weren't able to get the wickets needed. Mitchell Santner struggled with the ball and they didn't have enough time to pick the required wickets.
England needed 273 to win the game but from the very start of their innings, it was pretty evident that they were not really interested in going for the win. Rory Burns and Dominic Sibley started cautiously and batted with the sole purpose of blocking the deliveries. Rory Burns fell after a good knock but Dominic Sibley carried on. He was very impressive as he showed great patience and looking very solid while defending the balls. Zak Crawley didn't trouble the scorers much but Sibley found a good partner in Joe Root. The English skipper started slowly but then scored a decent knock of 40 runs. He was out to a peach of a delivery by Neil Wagner and a few more wickets after that could have spelled trouble for England. But Ollie Pope joined Dominic Sibley and both of them batted their team to safety.
Kane Williamson has decided to shake hands and call it a draw. End of a good Test match, it could have produced a result if Day 3 hadn't been washed out due to rain. A good performance by both the teams and England would be happy with the way their batters showed grit in the second innings.

Drinks break! The key for England remains Dominic Sibley, he has batted extremely well in this innings and would look to carry his to safety. The only way that New Zealand can win this game is if they can pick up a flurry of wickets. We are in the last hour of play and both teams can decide to call it a draw anytime. But for now, New Zealand have decided to continue. They need to pick 7 wickets in the last hour to win the game.

We are set to resume! Tim Southee will start after Tea as Dominic Sibley and Joe Root have taken their positions. Here we go...
.. Day 5, Session 3 ...
Right then! We are in the final session of this Test. An interesting session coming up. Will we witness a draw? Or will New Zealand manage to pick up 8 wickets? We will find out. Do join us for the final session in about 20 minutes.
For the Kiwis, their only target would be picking up the crucial wicket of Joe root and rip their inexperienced line up later on to get a win. Wagner has been consistent with his line and lengths while Jamieson isn't allowing the batsman to get runs off his bowling, he has been unlucky to not get the elusive outside edge despite going past it on numerous occasiosn. Southee as in the first innings has been bowling well but would like to repeat the heroics. There is also some turn in this wicket and it would be crucial to see what role Mitchell Santner plays.
After New Zealand declared on 169 asking England to chase down 273, the openers started the innings well as they played their innings slowly and took their time to settle. The English openers showed character while batting. Especially Sibley, who showed great patience early on in the innings. Burns and Sibley carried in fine fashion and defended with confidence. They showed great composure as they rarely chased any deliveries. Burns saw some extra bounce and would consider himself lucky not falling early. But Wagner came on dismissed him off a really good delivery. Sibley continued to show patience while Crawley departed off Southee after a timid score. Root and Sibley would look to continue to play slow and steady and will keep their eyes on a draw.
A good session for England and it is very likely that this game will end in a draw. They have hung in there and would look to carry on the same way post Tea. For New Zealand, the only thing that they would look to do is pick up wickets soon.
